“We are in the midst of a major transformation in healthcare. Surviving this transformation requires us to re-think how we deliver patient care.

In 2014, Dr. Head created an independent consulting company, AHEAD Healthcare Consulting, Inc., with new innovative approaches to perioperative consulting, using physician-based leadership with practical experience that understand institutions need customized practical approaches to transformational change; not formula driven, plug and play evaluations.
Dr. Head is well published and holds two US Patents.

At the AMA, Dr. Head served as Chair of the Council on Science and Public Health.
